"We're in an Imperial dungeon ship… the kind they used to transport Jedi Knights during the Clone Wars… and it looks like we've reached our destination!"
Luke Skywalker to R2-D2

The Lictor-class dungeon ship, also known as an Imperial dungeon ship, was a versatile warship and mobile prison based on a design used by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusader Fleet during the Mandalorian Wars. The design proved resilient enough that it was still in use nearly four thousand years after its conception.

Characteristics

A Force-sensitive holding cell on board a dungeon ship.

The models used by the Galactic Empire were equipped with universal energy cages, holding cells, drop bays, and sparring chambers where Dark Side Adepts could battle captive Jedi. They were designed to intimidate, and gained a reputation for never returning a captive who entered them. Guard droids were used to help prevent Jedi escapes.

In order to ensure that prisoners couldn't revolt and commandeer a vessel, their navicomps only were able to hold two sets of coordinates (the home base and the destination), and so could only go to those locations.

In addition to the MandalMotors design, there was also the scaled down Kiltirin-class, manufactured by Rendili StarDrive.

History

An Imperial dungeon ship.

The Lictor-class was used to transport normal and Force-sensitive prisoners, such as captured Jedi Knights during the height of the Great Jedi Purge following the Clone Wars. The Revelator was dispatched to accompany Inquisitor Valin Draco on a mission to the Cularin system, not long after the end of the Clone Wars.[1]

During the aftermath of the Imperial Civil War in 10 ABY, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 were transported on an Imperial dungeon ship to Byss, the secret throne world of the "reborn" Emperor Palpatine. By that time, a dungeon ship could be purchased for 7.8 million credits.

Behind the scenes

Lictors were officers in Ancient Rome who guarded ranking members of the Roman Senate.

Star Wars Republic: The Dreadnaughts of Rendili indicates that the dungeon ships were refitted from Dreadnaught-class heavy cruisers captured during the Battle of Rendili. These were based on a Mandalorian design similar to Lictor-class dungeon ships, and so converted into them.
